    Hi there, I am going to be purchasing some Rokit 6's I am aware i need a audio interface to get the ebst results out of them. However i am also going to be purchasing some CDJ's...
    I was wondering, can i use a 4 channel mixer such as the Numark M6 as an audio interface for my monitors and as a mixer for my CDJ's?

    You don't need an audio interface for monitors just decent outputs on a mixer. The audio interface would be for playing things from a computer as most built in soundcards are shite. The Numark M6 will be fine for the Rokits.

    Yes it will be ok. It will only have 1 stereo channel of sound from the computer. If you want more you need to look at USB 2.0 mixers. The sound quality on a mixer that cheap wont be great either.

    could you recommend a good one that will give good sound quality then?
    Also why would it only have 1 stereo channel? im a tad lost when it comes to this

    Edit:
    Also why would the sound quality not be that great?
